  • You like collaborating with others to develop our product and are able to communicate with non-software experts on software topics. 
  • You have an autonomous working attitude and the ability to simply get started.
  • PLUS: You know your way around route optimization and have a detailed understanding of operating systems for robotic applications.
  • PLUS: You already worked with composites and have some CAD design experience.
You do not tick all the boxes? We are looking for driven candidates who most importantly add to our culture, and don’t just blend in. Submit an Unsolicited Application if you think that you are a fit.
What we care about
  • Honesty: Being authentic and honest creates trust toward colleagues, customers, and business partners.

Holy is a hybrid company. It would be great if you can join us at our HQ in Hamburg. For specific positions, we are also hiring fully remotely within +/- 2h of the Hamburg HQ timezone (CEST/GMT+2). To promote our team culture and to spend some quality time together, we organize frequent offsites to meet, work, and most importantly have fun together.
About us

Holy Technologies is the developer of a machine learning-enhanced additive manufacturing system for composite components. The company helps innovation leaders across industries to make their structural carbon fiber components up to 30% lighter, 50% cheaper and 100% recyclable.

The technology addresses 80% of the components in the multi-billion dollar composite market, from carbon fiber to glas fibers, and from sport equipment, medical, automotive, maritime, UAVs and aircraft to wind turbine blades. Holy already works with global innovation leaders, from the automotive and medical industries.

Mobility hardware has a weight problem. By reducing weight, we can enhance battery performance and increase payloads, allowing vehicles—whether terrestrial, aerial, or maritime—to move across greater distances with less energy consumption. Composites are best suited for the task. Yet, we need a fresh category of composite manufacturing: one that's radically more affordable and sustainable. Radical improvement will make composites viable for a much broader array of applications, thereby substituting heavier materials, and triggering a dramatic lightweighting impact that can reach Co2-savings in the magnitude of gigatons.
